OutSystems has announced to add new artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities to its low code developer platform. This allows organizations to use automation to build self-service portals and respond to text and voice commands, for example.

With low code it is possible to build applications without having to write a lot of code. As a result, it is not necessary to hire developers to create internal apps, for example, as people with little knowledge of programming in the company can also do this.

OutSystems now makes it possible to make more use of AI and machine learning within this platform. Developers can now create new channels of interaction in their own apps, connecting customers and users with the help and information they need. The possibilities should enable organisations to build voice support functions for virtual assistants such as Google, Siri and Alexa. They can also develop chatbots with support for Facebook Messenger, Cortana and Skype.

All of this requires no experience with data science. Specialised in-house skills are also not required.


OutSystems focuses primarily on enterprises that need to develop many applications, preferably as quickly as possible. As a result, the company wants to provide products that will enable these organisations to build and roll out their applications more quickly, as vice president Digital Transformation Rui Pereira told us in January.

The new possibilities contribute to this. António Alegria, the head of artificial intelligence at Outsystems, explains that the components contain everything that organizations need to implement rich use cases end to end. “As a result, many more companies can easily adopt AI and machine learning to have a positive impact on their business. The combination of low code and AI addresses the biggest challenge these companies face: the lack of skills.”
